Default Alienware M11x - Anyone have one yet?

So does anyone here have an M11x yet?
Would love to get another users opinion on it!

I want one, but prices aren't very enticing yet.


Waiting for Dell to put them on sale or waiting for people on forums to sell them(Notebookreview) lol.


People there splurge like no tomorrow, and then they sell it on BST. Picked up a UL30vt for $700, screen wasn't very good, resold it for $800. I picked up a Dell Latitude V13 for $400 weeks before it came out in Canada, didn't like it, resold it for $500. I recently picked up a MBP 13" + iPhone 3GS for $900, sold it to my cousin for $700 and the 3GS for $300. Them Americans, lol.

Hahah ya, good point!
I think that is where I will be getting my m11X from as well, through their classifieds. I'm pretty sold on the little unit. It's not TOO small(asus eee pc) can still game moderately well, and has a darn near full sized/properly laid out keyboard. That and you can't beat the battery life!

If you can get one on sale then I'd recommend it, I personally just don't like Alienware though. The M11X looks great and packs some serious oomph, but it's ridiculously priced.

I'd recommend an Asus 1215PN, I'm personally waiting for that netbook, looks to be a real winner with an Intel Atom D500 Dual Core Chip and backed by Nvidia ION2 Graphics.

Plays everything I need(SC2, WoW, Borderlands, CoD:MW2 - all medium to high settings) and so far so stable, mine runs a tad warm to the touch, but the internal temps are only maxing at 61(highest I have seen) so it's just the feel of a small laptop really. Idle is 40-45.

Great machine so far, great battery life for anything not gaming, gaming is about 2-3 hours battery life.

I have had my M11x Since launch. It is awesome! the best laptop i have ever owned. The size is perfect. The battery life is awesome. The gaming performance is amazing for the size. i can play l4d maxed, sc2 no problem. Only games it has trouble with are CPU intensive games like GTA. Read my review in the review section if you wanna know more about it or pictures. Futureshop just started selling them as well if you wanna run down to see one in real life.

I ordered mine 2 days ago.

Core i7, 4GB, accidental 1 year warranty: CAD $1342.44 with taxes.

I might cancel though, because GT 400m searies graphics chips are coming out and this one has a GT 335m.
